Get ready, small-town America – the queens are coming!

HBO Network has announced a new unscripted TV series titled We’re Here starring RuPaul’s Drag Race alumni Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara, and Shangela.

Over six episodes, the trio of RPDR royalty will travel to small towns across the country with the goal of “empowering local communities with the magic of drag.”

Each installment of the series will feature a different town where locals will be recruited to participate in a one-night-only drag show.

The three queens will work to inspire their ‘drag daughters’ to step out of their comfort zone.

We’re getting a Queer Eye / To Wong Foo vibe here…

Creator and executive producer Johnnie Ingram says, “We’re bringing the art of drag into small-town America in an effort to make connections in unexpected places.”

“Drag is about confidence and self-expression,” says Nina Rosenstein, EVP, HBO programming in a statement. “We are so thrilled to showcase the transformative power of the art form with our audience.”

All three queens will contribute as consulting producers on the series with Ingram and co-creator/executive producer Stephen Warren.
